Microsoft has finished Service Pack 3

Posted on: April 23, 2008

Windows XP Service Pack 3 which should have been available early 2006 but was pushed back as Microsoft concentrated more on Windows Vista will be available next week to users who have kept the utomatic updates on. The update, which consists of previously released updates and a few new bug fixes and changes, will be available for download via the Web on April 29.

Update includes –

  • Support for WPA2, the latest standards-based wireless security solution derived from the IEEE 802.11i standard.
  • Improvements to black-hole router detection (detecting routers that are silently discarding packets). Windows XP SP3 turns this protection on by default.
  • BITS 2.5, which is required by Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 and Windows Live OneCare.
  • Peer Name Resolution Protocol (PNRP), which allows Windows XP applications to communicate with Windows Vista programs that use PNRP.
  • Windows Installer 3.1, which contains new and enhanced functionality and addresses some issues that Microsoft found in Windows Installer 3.0.
  • Digital Identity Management Service (DIMS), which allows users who log on to any domain-joined computer to silently access all of their certificates and private keys for applications and services.
